Here we go with the Sports Time Radio NBA Awards. Now the guys only had to pick and MVP and a Rookie of the Year. We used the same set up we always do; Schaumburg Stu, Dan the Man and Mr. Fantasy were sent stats for 6 players with no names attached and were asked to ranked them from best season to worse season. Not that any of these where bad seasons; just in comparison to the guys they were up against. A player got 6 points for a 1st place vote, 5 points for a 2nd place vote and so on down to 1 point for a 6th place vote. To help break ties a player was giving .5 of a point.for a 1st place vote. Here’s what we got.

Russell Westbrook (15.5) of the Oklahoma City Thunder is the Sports Time Radio NBA MVP. Westbrook played in 67 games and led the NBA in scoring with 28.1 points per game. Westbrook also handed out 8.6 assists per game, grabbed 7.3 rebounds per game and 2.1 steals per game this season. Here are the other player who received votes with their point totals next to their name in parenthesis. Anthony Davis (14.5) New Orleans Pelicans. James Harden (11.5) Houston Rockets. Stephen Curry (11) Golden State Warriors. LeBron James (9) Cleveland Cavaliers. DeMarcus Cousins (3) Sacramento Kings.

Andrew Wiggins (19.5) of the Minnesota Timberwolves was the unanimous as Rookie of the Year. Wiigins played in all 82 games for the Timberwolves. He averaged 16.9 points per game, grabbed 4.6 rebounds per game and handed out 2.1 assists per game while getting 1.0 steals per game. Here are the other player who received votes.
